Home. It Isn’t Some Abstract Concept

Home. It isn’t some abstract concept
It is the loving embrace & happy tears
To return to the only ones who matter
A sigh of relief, time to expel all fear
The safety of my family’s precious arms
Another deployment forevermore sealed
I’m present; allowing us to move forward
& soon enough those pains will be healed

Don’t Throw Words Around Needlessly

friends-1209449.jpg

Don’t throw words around needlessly
Some of these schmucks have been around thirty years
Tried, tested & forged these unbreakable bonds
Held each other through heartache & tears
There is real meaning behind those words
Forever isn’t some witty concept or newfangled trend
It’s a genuine & authentic lifelong bond
For you’ll know I love you when I call you my friend

Floating Mercilessly Through Life

seaside-371229.jpg

Floating mercilessly through life
There’s a frightful hurt I can’t express
Another evening to fill the shadows
Gotta love the girls who say yes
Travels to the end & back
You owe them something you can’t be sure
Debts from so long into the past
Former lives back when we were pure
Standing naked in front of the bench
Those were the days when we really flew
Tears fall in thought for lost souls
In my prime, I could take out a whole slew

The Ink Smudged On My Finger

The ink smudged on my finger
Proof I was thinking about you
Knowing the dire truth
Wishing you didn’t feel so blue
So, I’ll slowly remove my tie
& leave you in your finest state of undress
We’ll dance & love the night away
Our tears & sweat – a passionate mess

High Upon The Hill

High upon the hill
With the city down below
Lies a teary-eyed princess
With reasons she doesn’t know
The magic of forgotten beauties
The thought of a heart inspired
Her soul is pure
The enchantment of that desired
The cool wind gives a chill
Modesty mixed with being shy
The future is still ahead
There’s hope in the midnight sky

Sad Downcast Beauty

Sad downcast beauty

Why are you so down?

What is it that ails thee?

Your tears heard around town

C’mon sugar britches!

I need a smile from you

Sing me a sweet song

No reason to stay this blue

Grab hold of my shoulder

Let me raise you to the sky

Love could be a sweaty mess

Never again reason to cry

Outlawed Poets Writing Of Things We Cannot Discuss

Outlawed poets writing of things we cannot discuss

Hiding out from society for all these years

Push them further away from anything real

They’re no longer human, those aren’t real tears

Becoming everything you never wanted to be

When did you become the instrument of all this pain

Working the outskirts of the foreign cities

You’re gonna be lost when it finally starts to rain

Seaside Memory

Your seaside memory remaining vigilant

Past days still dripping with salty air

The gulls cry stirred you onward

Precious tears forever entombed out there

The horizon entices an early morning gaze

Trapped in other worlds as you stare

The love of beauty & other expert riches

Though you know I was the one who truly cares
